PLEASE TAKE THE TIME to do an inventory of your home! A FIRE can destroy your life in a flash. I would HATE to have ANYONE go through what I am going through!!

Imaginisce Found Object Altered Project


I decided to play along with Imaginisce January Challenge to Alter a found object. I found this kleenex box cover at the thrift shop a couple months ago, and knew I could make it look a lot PRETTIER for my scrappy room!

This is what it looked like when I bought it:

I decided it would be great to make a side for all 4 seasons, (sorry pics aren't very good, I will take more once the sun comes up tomorrow!) NICE N SUNNY!! GOT GOOD PICS! LOL!

Here is Spring, I used papers from For Peeps Sake, and the Chubby Chicky Stickers from Lucy Bird:
Here is Summer, I used papers and the glass stickers from Splash Dance:
Here is Fall, I used paper from The Apple Cider Collection, I LOVE all the fall things on this paper so I didn't use anything else except the title:
and Winter, I HATE Winter and the cold, but this is MY FAVE side of this project. I used papers and the Chipboard stickers from Polar Expressions Collections.
Here is a pic of the top, I used papers from For Peeps Sake collection, I cut 3/4 inch strips and did an accordian fold and glue several together and around my circle. The small flower is what I had left over and I just folded the strip into 1/3rds and twisted it to make a little flower. The leaves are free handed and I just did some pen work. The lace is from my stash. And of course, I used Modge Podge to glue it all down!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
